Gissburg Ponds

This excellent fishing opportunity for both adults and children is located about five miles north of Marysville at Gissburg Twin Lakes County Park  (Snohomish County Parks).  Both ponds are open to fishing year-round.  The north pond (North Gissburg/Twin) is open only to juveniles (under 15 years of age).  South Gissburg/Twin is open to all legal anglers.  Catchable-size rainbow trout are stocked several times in spring and early summer.  Jumbo triploid rainbow trout are also stocked in the spring.  Channel catfish have been planted as recent as 2011 in both ponds to provide a trophy catfish opportunity.  There is a two-fish harvest limit on channel catfish.
